Earlier this year, Texas Orthopaedic Associates took part in the launch of OrthoLoneStar, a new combined physician-led orthopedic practice comprising six top-rated orthopedic practices across Texas.
This new expanded practice enables Texas Orthopaedic Associates to build on its 34-year legacy of providing quality orthopedic care to student athletes, weekend warriors, professional athletes, the general population in the Dallas and North Texas areas and now around the state.
What does this mean for you? Here, the expert medical team at Texas Orthopaedic Associates shares the benefits of this new group and what it means for you and your family.
OrthoLoneStar and the advantages of private practice medicine
The founders believe that a doctor-led practice delivers the best value to the patient. Private practice medicine ensures that physicians and patients make health care decisions in a direct and independent manner.
When the general practice of medicine is impacted by external corporate forces that interfere with the relationship between you and your doctor, the power of the physician is weakened, and outcomes are affected. OrthoLoneStar is 100% physician-owned and is led by a board of directors composed of fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeons representing the six founding divisions.
Benefits of joining OrthoLoneStar
By joining forces with six top practices around the state, Texas Orthopaedic Associates is now part of the most extensive private orthopedic practice in Texas and the third-largest in the country.
Size allows for investment in data and processes to provide better orthopedic care. At launch, OrthoLoneStar will have 150+ physicians, more than 40 care centers, and more than 1,000 employees.
OrthoLoneStar has specialists in every orthopedic program, including spine, sports medicine, trauma, pain, pediatric, and care for the entire musculoskeletal system. The practice has locations covering Dallas/North Texas, Austin/Central Texas, Houston/Southeast Texas, and Tyler/East Texas.
The six groups were selected for quality, reputation, and patient outcome. They include, in addition to Texas Orthopaedic Associates:
- Dallas-based W.B. Carrell Clinic
- Houston-based Fondren Orthopedic Group
- Houston-based Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine
- Austin-based Texas Orthopedics Sports & Rehabilitation Associates
- Tyler-based Azalea Orthopedics
Building on a legacy of independent private practice, the teams of the founding divisions believe that continuing a tradition of physician-led practice will improve the delivery of health care across the state for the benefit of patients.
